Guests are invited to don their best white attire for the annual Masterpiece event, a chic cocktail reception featuring mixed media artist Cory Bennett. The party, called “20” for the museum’s 20th anniversary, will feature live entertainment as well as heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer, and a signature cocktail.
“Iconic Neo-Pop,” a new show created by mixed media artist Cory Bennett, will be featured in the main gallery. Bennett combines pop themes, iconic images, and neo-expressionist techniques to produce work that is wary of modern society. Born and raised in Las Vegas, Bennett has his own unique style of art that combines an urban “street” style with the use of found-media, providing the artist with an endless supply of complex and relevant subject matter.
In addition to Bennett, the Florida Watercolor Society will be featured in the East and Kuhn galleries. This 46th exhibition will feature works from Iain Stewart and Bev Jozwiak and is also part of the Society’s annual convention, which will bring nearly 500 artists from around Florida to Coral Springs.
The annual Masterpiece event is sponsored in part by Publix Supermarket Charities, Total Wine & More, Masterpiece Publishing, Broward County Cultural Division, State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, Coral Springs Festival of the Arts, and the City of Coral Springs, with proceeds supporting the educational programming of the Coral Springs Museum of Art.
